Thanks for the info. Can't wait to upgrade my (original) Vewlix with a nice 4k screen :)
The Samsung U32J590 4K 32" Freesync LED Monitor is now only £289 at Currys if you are still looking for an upgrade option.

Re: Vewlix: Replace easily your screen with a 1080p or 1440p monitor

Great thread! Has anyone tried this an original Vewlix yet? I have a exact same question. Mine is a Taito Vewlix L purchased from the container that the very helpful Jon brought over (and by the looks of it might have more Vewlix and others to sell soon). Had all the Taito bits inside including a T...

Re: Vewlix: Replace easily your screen with a 1080p or 1440p monitor

Any pics of the install? Curious how you mounted it. I did plan on buying brackets and screwing them into the holes in the metal frame and cover the ends In rubber but I wanted to quickly try the new 4K monitor I purchased (£314 from Amazon). I picked Neoprene adhesive backed sponge rubber and it w...

Re: Vewlix: Replace easily your screen with a 1080p or 1440p monitor

I managed to put a Iiyama 4K monitor in the Vewlix and it’s running my pc and Xbox One X just fine. As soon as I turn the mains switch on it will automatically display whichever system is powered on.

So glad to remove the Vewlix monitor as it’s so heavy and cumbersome compared to a light monitor.

I have found arcade forum users are generally very helpful to each other unlike other gaming forums so it’s a strange one. Totally agree, I just think he didn't take time to see/read all the topic.

Re: Vewlix: Replace easily your screen with a 1080p or 1440p monitor

Looks the same size as a Taito Vewlix from my rough measurements. I did notice that the screen on the 1080 monitor is slightly smaller than the 1440 according to the specifications on the web if that makes any difference. Also you are taking some flak on arcade projects for your methods but I don’t ...

Re: Vewlix L Brighten White Plastic

Looks the same size to me but I haven’t got to the stage of replacing it yet.

You can really tell how bad the yellowing is once you compare it to new plastic.

Re: Vewlix L Brighten White Plastic

I was going to try something along the lines of upvc cream restorer, sugar soap or some of the other ideas I read on restoring yellowed upvc window frames. Then I went the easier route and just ordered some new panels (Asian copies).

Re: Vewlix: Replace easily your screen with a 1080p or 1440p monitor

Thanks for all the helpful information and photos. I am looking to replace the monitor with a cheap 4K monitor as I will be using an Xbox One X and a 1080ti. I am considering the Samsung U32J590 but I just can’t seem to find any measuments for the bezel to compare it to the LG models in this thread.

Thanks a lot for the photos as it does look a perfect match size wise with a gorgeous screen. Did I also read correctly that the first photo is of the cheaper 1080 model and it fits the Vewlix? Also for anyone else looking to buy the same type of monitor as yours there is a much cheaper version (aro...

In the following video you can finally see the CMI board v.3 along with everything else in the cluttered control panel. And look at the spinners so close to the joysticks.

Re: exA-Arcadia

The system looks awesome. I most probably have missed it but to me the most important part of arcade games is the high score table, are the scores linked via the internet? I would love to be able to buy the hardware and play at home and then be able to view the high scores from each arcade that has ...

Re: Vewlix: replace screen with OLED 1080p monitor?

Its not OLED but you could ask the Chewlix suppliers on alibaba to sell you one of their 1080 monitors they put in their cabinets. I also noticed that the Koreans who make that CMI controller panel have put a 4K screen in their Vewlix so that might be another option if you are running a powerful PC ...

Re: Cabs in Sheds/Garages

I would have though it’s the moisture that you have to avoid not the temperature, maybe a dehumidifier in there and you will be fine.

Someone more knowledgeable than me will give you the correct answer.

Both of those methods is usually what I usually resort to. My issues are, however, leaving the front panel open, my dog wants to get in there lol. As for the ds4. It's not a bad option at all, as that is what I usually do, but I have two ps4s in the house and two ds4's. This creates a problem when ...

Re: Vewlix Custom Auxiliary Control Panel?

I can’t answer your question but I have seen them on YouTube videos from Korean users so you could try asking them.

I noticed another Korean user uploaded a new video with a different layout, look at all those buttons. He has a nice collection of home games.

Recommendations for a bench seat with a back rest?

Can anyone recommend a useful bench seat that has a back rest? I did find an interesting convertible bench seat on amazon but it’s hard to gauge how comfy it would be just from photos. It would be used on a Vewlix so if I am correct you need a 48cm height one which this is:- https://www.amazon.co.uk...
